Yankees trade reliever Nick Ramirez to the Dodgers


The New York Yankees have traded left handed relief pitcher Nick Ramirez of Anaheim Hills, California to the Los Angeles Dodgers according to Paul Kasabian of Bleacher Report on Tuesday. In return the Yankees are receiving cash considerations. The Dodgers will be the fourth Major League Baseball team Ramirez has pitched for. He was also with the Detroit Tigers in 2019 and 2020, the San Diego Padres in 2021, and the New York Yankees in 2023. During the 2022 baseball season, Ramirez was with the Seattle Mariners organization, but spent the entire year in AAA, as he was with the Mariners’ minor league affiliate in Tacoma. By being traded from the Yankees to the Dodgers, Ramirez returns to his home state of California.
